What Christians Believe

Holy Bible: Christians believe in the Divine inspiration, the infallibility and supreme authority of the Old & New Testaments in their entirety. They alone constitute the sole & absolute authority in all matters pertaining to Christian faith & practice.

Trinity: Christians believe there is one God, perfect & holy, existing eternally in three equal divine persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is the creator & sustainer of all things, both visible & invisible, the heavens, the earth & all that is contained in the universe.

Jesus Christ: Christians believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the eternally existing only begotten Son of God, the Lord of all creation who was with God in the beginning & at the appointed time took the form of man, lived a sinless life & died on a cross being raised again on the third day.

Virgin Birth: Christians believe that Jesus was the Word made flesh, supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit & born of the virgin Mary.

Redemption: Christians believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life and died as a sacrifice on the cross, shedding His blood for the remission of sin for all mankind. He is the only source of salvation from the penalty & consequence of sin.

Resurrection: Christians believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead in His own glorified body for mans’ justification, ascended into Heaven & is seated at the right hand of the Father.

Salvation: Christians believe that all men are in a fallen sinful and lost condition as a result of the original sin of Adam & Eve who were created without sin. In this state of depravity man is helpless to save himself & is under the condemnation of God to eternal punishment in Hell. Salvation from this state is solely by grace & is received through genuine repentance toward God and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. This experience is known as “new birth” and is an instantaneous & complete operation of the Holy Spirit who alone convicts men of sin, leads them to repentance, creates faith within them and regenerates. The regenerate person is indwelt by the Holy Spirit who imparts gifts & manifests fruits through the believer.

Second Coming: Christians believe the Lord Jesus Christ will visibly return to earth in person to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by scripture.

Kingdom of God: Christians believe that the Kingdom of God is made up of believers from all nations and denominations who are under the headship of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Church is the visible manifestation of the Body of Christ in the local community expressing itself through local congregations.

The Christian Life: Christians believe that the Christian life is expressed outwardly by conformity to the standards expressed in the Bible which is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to Christian faith & practice.

How to get to Heaven, according to God's Word (the Holy Bible)...

We are all sinful.
  • Isaiah 53:6, "All we like sheep have  gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid  on him the iniquity of us all."
  • John 3:3, "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
  • Romans 3:10, "As it is written,  There is none righteous, no, not one."
  • Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned,  and come short of the glory of God."

There is a price on our sin - eternal death in Hell.
  • Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin  is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our  Lord."
  • Romans 5:12, "Wherefore, as by one  man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon  all men, for that all have sinned."
  • 2nd Thessalonians 1:8, "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ."
  • Revelation 20:15, "And whosoever was  not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
  • Revelation 21:8, "But the fearful,  and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and  sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Jesus suffered our punishment; he paid our fine, the price for our sins by dying on the cross and shedding His blood.
  • Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
  • John 3:16, "For God so loved the  world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him  should not perish, but have everlasting life.
  • 1st Timothy 1:15, "This is a  faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into  the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief."
  • 1st Peter 1:18-19, "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ..."

By faith in Jesus Christ ALONE we can be saved; Salvation is NOT found in a religion or good works, but in a Person... The LORD JESUS CHRIST!
  • John 11:25, "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live."
  • John 14:6, "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
  • John 6:40, "And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one who sees the Son, and believes in him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."
  • Mark 1:15, "And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."
  • Acts 26:18, "To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me."
  • Romans 10:13, "For whosoever shall  call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
  • 1st Corinthians 3:11, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
  • Galatians 3:26, "For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus."
